BP May Have Helped Release Terrorist Abdel Basset al Megrahi

 

U.S. lawmakers are requesting an investigation into BP´s possible role that helped release terrorist Abdel Basset al Megrahi, of the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing.

Senator Frank Lautenberg said in a report to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations that, "Reports have surfaced indicating that a 2007 oil agreement may have influenced the U.K. and Scottish governments positions concerning Mr. Megrahi´s release in 2009."

In the coming months, BP plans on drilling in Libya, according to the 2007 oil agreement, and promoted on the company website as "the single biggest exploration financial commitment an international energy company has ever made to Libya."

"Like many others we were aware that a delay might have negative consequences for UK commercial interests, including ratification of BP´s exploration agreement.
